From numerous geek fashion related panels, to the aptly named Geek Fashion Show on Friday, there are loads of events and vendors you’ll definitely want to check out.
Most conventions don’t have more than 1 or 2 panels related to geek fashion and style, but this year Comikaze has a whopping FIVE that are all, or in part, about fashion and style for geeks:

If you’re going to Comikaze this weekend, be sure to keep an eye out for Lindz and me! Lindz will be covering the fashion show on Friday and I’ll be in it representing Gold Bubble Clothing. Saturday you can find us as panelist in the Geek Girl Fashion panel at 1pm, Rm 301B. Otherwise you’re sure to find us roaming the con taking pictures of girls in outfits, or hanging out at the Gold Bubble Booth #1409.
